Flow Rates and Water Conditions

Water Conditions: Good, showing 8 cfs as of 11/11

Remember, these are the flows just below Highway 395 on Mammoth Creek.

Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Fair-Good

Due the storm the parking for the canyon section is at the Hot Creek Ranch driveway, PLEASE DO NOT BLOCK THEIR DRIVEWAY.  The parking for the Interpretive site is out on Hot Creek Road so make sure there's room for passing cars.The Tricos and caddis are done so now it's midges, Baetis and possibly craneflies and October caddis.

The mayfly hatches midday are now just the Baetis. The morning and evening hatches are almost all midges. The craneflies are midmorning and the October caddis are late afternoon-evening. Scuds and egg patterns will work all day.

I still tell my clients that a 4 second drift is average and finish with an aggressive pickup, you will hook fish you never knew existed.
